Nationals lay out plan for Doug Fister
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Doug Fister will continue his slow recovery from a lat injury Thursday when he pitches two innings in an extend spring training game. Manager Matt Williams laid out the team's methodical plan for the next few steps of Fister's recovery Wednesday.

"Plan right now is we'll wait five days," Williams said. "After that he'll do that again in extended increased to three innings depending on workload, and then we'll send him out for a four-inning or five-inning rehab start. He should be good to go if all goes well. That's the tentative plan. It's not written in stone because you don't know how he's going to feel. It may even turn bigger than that depending on how it goes."

Fister has yet to pitch this season due to the injury, which landed him on the disabled list to open the season.
